Table Of Contents: Comparing Plant and Animal Cell Mitosis

1. Mitosis in Plants
Plants use a similar process to divide with a few differences. For example, although a plant cell creates spindle fibers, it lacks centrioles.
2. Plants Form Cell Plates
Plant cells divide by forming a cell plate in the middle which grows until its edges reach the cell's outer surface splitting the parent cell into two daughter cells.
